Extron Electronics will introduce HDMI switchers that support data rates up to 18 Gbps and signals up to 4K 60 with 4:4:4 colour sampling.

The two input SW2 HD 4K Plus and the four input SW4 HD 4K Plus are HDCP compliant, and support HDR, 12-bit Deep Colour, 3D, Lip Sync, HD lossless audio formats, and CEC pass-through. The switchers provide automatic input cable equalisation up to 7.6 m on Extron HDMI Pro Series cable. The switchers can be operated via front panel controls or auto-switching. Ethernet, RS-232, and contact closure ports provide ample options for integration with any control system. Both models feature EDID minder. 

The SW HD 4K PLUS has automatic input cable equalisation, automatic colour bit depth management, indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting and peripheral device power on the output. Automatic input cable equalisation corrects for signal loss so signal integrity can be maintained up to 7.6 meters, when used with Extron HDMI Pro Series cable. The SW HD 4K PLUS automatically adjusts colour bit depth based on the display EDID, preventing colour compatibility conflicts between source and display. Front panel LED indicators provide visual confirmation of HDCP authentication and signal presence for each input and output. If HDCP-encrypted content is transmitted to a non-compliant display, a full-screen green signal provides visual confirmation that protected content cannot be viewed on that display. The SW HD 4K PLUS also provides +5 VDC, 250 mA on the HDMI output for powering peripheral devices such as an Extron HD 4K 101 Plus cable equaliser.
